Need Help ASAP

I need to know if a 2012 6.7 can be put into a 08 if all the stuff is swapped over like the Exhaust and sensors.

I have a 2008 Sterling Bullet 45 with 210k and i have a once in a life time op to grab a 2012 6.7 with 28k on it, But its the High Output motor, my Injectors took a **** and rather then spend over $3k for replacement i can spend alot less then that for this engine.

I only have till tomorrow to decide if i want this engine or not.

Is the 2012 engine out of a 25/3500? Then you need to think about the tranny since your 4500 has the Asian trans if its auto and the 25/3500 use the 68rfe transmission. Besides that is I don't know if there is any differences in the dash electronics, got to assume they are same.

Are you looking for more hp or do you think you can do the swap cheaper vs. replacing the injectors figuring the time and effort to swap out the complete engine and maybe the trans?

Tuning is diffenrent, you "MAY" be able to get it to work, but it would be way easier to just replace the injectors, if they didnt do any melting of pistons. There are several more sensors on the 4th Gens than on the 3rd Gens.
